    I have a 5 hour 45 minute layover in Beijing on the 26th May 2016. I was wondering if this will be enough time to take any of your tours after getting through immigration and getting back with enough time for my flight. Thanks for your help, Amy Steadman.

      Hi Amy,

      Thank you for your message.

      I do not think you will have time to do any tours from airport.

    Interested in Forbidden city layover tour. Arriving at Beijing Airport at 6:20 am flight leaves same day at 12 pm. Would we have time to do this tour and still catch our flight on Air China to Los Angeles?

  3. Broillet says:

    We (3 adults) land in Beijing on Monday, December 21st at 11.45 and leave on the same day at 19.30. Would it be possible to visit Central Beijing, with Tiananmen Square and forbidden City? Or is it closed on Monday?
    What would be the price.
    Best regards,

      Hi Francoise,

      Thank you for your message.

      Yes, the Forbidden City is closed on Mondays. So I suggest you visit other attractions in Beijing, such as Great Wall, Hutong, or Summer Palace, etc.
